Great campus job for undergrad

Office Assistant (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Columbia University part-time for less than a year

ProsJob is great if you have computer skills, relaxed environment, food is allowed, schedule is flexible, supervisors are willing to work around your class schedule

ConsNot terribly challenging, supervisors are busy with their own work so they don't always have time to give you assignments, very easy to end up sitting behind a computer for six hours surfing the Internet

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
